Sweet masonic symbolism, too.


Ah yes, the ancient Masonic ink and sake.

well if that otaku girl from Genshikin (sic) is there there must be yaoi in that book somewhere!


So, yeah, theres a yaoi plotline. But Im a newbie: what gives it away? The hoodie? The hair?



I feel I should explain the cartoon, but I dont know what its about, apart from including everything I had in my head when I drew it. The middle figure is Zinck, a sort of alter ego of mine, and shes wearing a t-shirt borrowed from Evangeline Brandt, her alter ego. The t-shirt design comes from the cover art of Cubs album Box of Hair. Cub: 90s Vancouver girl band who broke up pretty much the same day I discovered them. Hair = creativity? Yeah, thats Oguie. Genshiken rocks! The book is the Book of Everything, so yeah theres yaoi in it. Magic square: Durers Melancholia or Sudoku? The boat is Sebastian Brants Ship of Fools. Becassine is a French comic from 100 years ago. The Japanese on the book reads Jump. Olive Oyl needs no introduction!
